Lightship 95 Recording Studio Introduction

Lightship 95 

Welcome to our analogue & digital recording facility onboard a converted lightship, permanently moored at Trinity Buoy Warf, East London.

The studio has been built in the hull of the boat, which used to house a huge diesel engine. There is a 300sq ft purpose built control room that is daylit through four portholes. The control room is based around a fantastic sounding Calrec S2 console, Protools 12 and a selection of outboard. There is a direct line of sight from the control room through to the 520sq ft live room, which is also naturally lit and boasts a high ceiling, classic 80's finish and excellent acoustics. The room can easily accommodate a whole band for live tracking; there is an excellent collection of microphones and a great choice of backline including a large range of Fender amps, drums from Slingerland and Rogers, as well as a beautiful red Wurlitzer and a Hammond organ with Leslie. The recording space also includes a large isolation booth and some unique reverb chambers.

On land across the drawbridge, there is free parking and a popular American Diner. You'll also have panoramic views of the famous Thames docklands... here is a special studio in a special location...
